East Passyunk’s Philly Typewriter has the write stuff


East Passyunk’s Philly Typewriter will be celebrating a special holiday this weekend—National Typewriter Day. On Thursday, June 23, the venue will host a two-hour lecture led by Founder and IBM Selectric Mechanic, Bryan Kravitz, which promises to showcase the history, value, and relevance of the analog writing device.

According to a release, located at 1735 E. Passyunk Ave., Philly Typewriter specializes in the restoration and preservation of typewriters with a focus on mechanically restoring each machine while utilizing 45 years of expertise and skills, combined with museum-level aesthetic restorations. Every typewriter sold is backed by a two-year warranty and annual tune-up service program for both home and business. In short, Philly Typewriter specializes in the restoration and rehabilitation of typewriters throughout the ages, with the goal of creating and sustaining a fully functional piece of history.

Word enthusiasts, curious minds, and so on, can join Kravitz on National Typewriter Day for the in-depth conversation, which will cover the typewriter and the impact its return has had on the world, particularly regarding sustainability and security.
